Teen Fatally Shot in Oceanside

A 17-year-old was shot to death in an Oceanside neighborhood early Sunday morning.

Oceanside police responded to calls of a gun shot heard nearby at about 2 a.m Sunday. When they arrived to the scene in the 400 block of Grant St, they found the teen suffering from a gunshot wound.

Medics treated the victim at the scene and later air-lifted him to Scripps Hospital. He died from his wounds shortly after, police said.
